The long-running Hot August Music Festival hits Cockeysville, Maryland, with an exciting summer lineup that includes Greensky Bluegrass, Shakey Graves, Dumpstaphunk, Andy Frasco and The UN, and more at Oregon Ridge Park on Saturday, Aug. 28!
Perhaps the artist Parklife DC is most excited to see at the festival is Shakey Graves, aka Alejandro Rose-Garcia. The 34-year-old Americana artist celebrated the 10th anniversary of his debut album with the release of Roll The Bones X on April 2.
“Ten years ago, Alejandro Rose-Garcia released his debut album as Shakey Graves, featuring songs rooted in the haunted blues of the American South. The Texas Americana and roots-rock musician holds forth on learning fingerpicking from a song by Kansas, the legendary Dr. John, sports metaphors, and the making of music not of this time,” said New Sound when reflecting upon the musician’s career to date.
